Winter tweaking - spreaders

Shortened the sled's #2 spreaders by 40mm. Now they only deflect the sidestay 50mm. Hopefully a little less lower mast bend will be the result.

The sled and The BUS went for a winter sail on Saturday, 23rd. Useless winter wind made us drift around for an hour. Nothing gained.
